Always Learning

I think one of the biggest reasons for why people are so lost is because when you’re a child, people are always asking you what you want to be when you grow up. You’re trained to spout out these notions of careers and jobs youd like to have like a doctor or president or ceo or something else of the like. When the answers everyone is crying out for are to feel loved, to feel important, and to feel whole. And no one ever really talks about the latter

I’m too cool for cuddles… Just kidding, I am going to make out with your face now.

Green shirt is Feb 2014, blue shirt and white sports bra are August 2014. I can&#8217;t tell if I&#8217;m making gains or just gaining weight, feeling pretty discouraged.

If they don’t reply to your texts — they’re not interested in you.

If they don’t call you — they’re not interested in you.

If they forget your birthday — they’re not interested in you.

If they’re hung up on their ex — they’re not interested in you.

If they’re obsessed with being single — they’re not interested in you.

If they don’t want to meet your friends — they’re not interested in you.

If they don’t want you to meet their friends — they’re not interested in you.

If they don’t ask questions about your life — they’re not interested in you.

If they don’t tell you things about their life — they’re not interested in you.

If they only speak to you when they want to have sex with you — they’re not interested in you.

If they only have sex with you when they’re drunk — they’re not interested in you.

If they say “should we just keep this between us?’ after you have sex with them — they’re not interested in you.

If they don’t have sex with you — they’re not interested in you.

If they can always find a psychobabble rationale about who “I am” or “you are” or “we are” as reason why you can’t be together — they’re not interested in you.

If they have said for more than six months that they would like to be with you “BUT” — they’re not interested in you.

And if you still need convincing — think of it this way. Think of what the real day-to-day of life is taken up by. Life is birthday parties at terrible pubs. Life is losing your credit card and the annual Melbourne Cup sweepstake in the office. Life is hen’s nights, bucks’ nights, sitting on the phone for three hours to get U2 tickets and not getting them, the apartment upstairs flooding your house, interval training, calorie counting, cancer scares, illegal mini cabs, Secret Santa, rail replacement buses and Dido albums. Dogs die, cars crash, bin liners break, contracts end, curtain rails collapse, trains get delayed, football teams lose. Divorce happens and so do earthquakes and so does An Audience With Michael Bublé. Landlords put rent up, phones get stolen and the supermarket often completely runs out of hummus.

Now, taking all of the above into account — you look me dead in the eye and tell me the truth. Do you really have enough spare energy to pursue someone who isn’t interested in you? Do you really want to waste any more time on top of all of that? No. Me neither. So give it up, my friend. It’s a loser’s game. Delete their number. Don’t go on any more dates with them. Stop lurking their Facebook page. Feels good, doesn’t it?

"This was about 3-4 weeks ago, but I absolutely love it because it literally sums up why scales shouldn’t be focused on so much, both photos are the exact same weight one year apart.
Left side photos were taken at the start of August last year and my weight was 80.4Kg. Right side photos taken 3 weeks ago and my weight is 80.5Kg, my quads are bigger and more defined, my calves are bigger and more defined.
Don’t let the scales rule your life!”

Stop chasing other peoples bodies as your goal body. 

Your body and their body are not the same. No amount of training and dieting is going to help you feel comfortable in your own skin. It may boost your confidence, but in the end you have to want to be in your own skin. 

your wellness is just as important as your fitness and health.

The biggest women’s weight lifting myth is not that you will get bulky, it’s that getting bulky is a negative thing.
